Along the time of my attempts to create cutting boards I discovered Tite Bond III glue.
The longer work time and tan color after dried made it seem a better choice than the yellow elmers glue.
http://lumberjocks.com/projects/6218 That is a cutting board made almost two years ago, and this one being the most recent http://lumberjocks.com/projects/25561
My question is “How long do we wait for glue to completely dry before finishing?”
The second board glue up was allowed to dry for at least two weeks before finishing and now after finish is dry and left to cure for approx. two weeks. What I am finding is the glue is squeezing out between the joints even two weeks after it is suppose to be dry and cured. I am completely baffeled with this problem and am wondering if anyone else has had this happen to them?
The cutting boards are sanded to a 220 finish then several coats of wipe on General Finishes Salad Bowl finish. They are smooth as a babys bottom when done but then about two weeks later every glue joint is raised.
I keep scratching my head looking for answers and am getting no where so…..LJ’s Please help me out!
